I, Myself, Will Tend My Sheep

2nd Sunday After Easter – Good Shepherd Sunday

Today’s sermon delves into why there is One we call the Good Shepherd who is willing to die for His sheep and also why there are hirelings who abandon the flock in need.  The Introit of today’s Mass clearly invokes Mercy under the Banner of the Good Shepherd who, in fact, gave up His life for His sheep and continues to do so at every Sacrifice of the Mass.  For a further contemplation we are referred to Chapter 34 of the Book of the Prophet Ezekiel, for in it God declares against false shepherds and promises to care for the sheep Himself.
